As I'm sure a lot of apps deal with the Internet in some way in our cloud society I think it would be a great thing if you included the Reachability "stuff" native within MonoTouch. I have the class added to my project, it's not a big deal, but we should really encourage people to use network detection, it's a known fail for app reviews if you don't check internet first, so why not include the system within MonoTouch to detect network availability.
P.S. I'm making the suggestion via bugzilla as I don't feel user voice is "heard" and I want this suggestion to be seen and considered.
The SystemConfiguration framework's NetworkReachability class is available in Xamarin.iOS: https://developer.xamarin.com/api/type/SystemConfiguration.NetworkReachability/
